If you do not already know who represents you in congress and their contact information here is a handy website for that.

http://www.contactingthecongress.org/

Just put your zip code in and search. You will get phone number, fax number and web contact information. My reps already have emails sent.

Does anyone know if any ammo manufacturer's are doing a mass email where you go to the sight and fill in your info and your reps get generic email regarding the issue. I know Ruger did something similar in the wake of the proposed assault weapons ban after sandy hook.

$.45-$.50 per round has been the norm for a pretty good while now unless you were buying in bulk. Every now and then you could catch a pretty good sale on it but for the most part $9-$10 per 20 rounds was pretty normal.

Good stuff! Looks like $1 a round is what people are expecting on TGT.

Cant believe some of those clowns that feel its their duty to post those "price gouger" ads over there. Something tells me they missed the bus and got caught flat footed without any ammo and now they want someone to sell them some of thiers for less than market value. roflmao

These is the reply quote i got off my add on armslist

"This ammo is on the shelf of every wallmart and academy in town right now $70 for 150 rounds. Also the ATF does not push any bans. They only enforce the current laws. Go peddle your scam somewhere else"

"Your lower than pond scum , raping innocent people , your the worst kind of gun owner there is "

I had about 500 rounds of 855 , a bunch of 223 soft point , couple boxes of varmint loads and even a few sierra game kings , I had the lot listed at around $.65 for it all . Sold the ar forgot i had the ammo sitting in the closet . I was very surprised at those kinda of comments .

Doesn't surprise me at all. People want what they cant have but they want it at a price of their choosing.

I'd of told him to piss off and buy it off the shelves then instead of wasting everyone's time.

Try Academy.

I picked up a 900 round can at the store in NRH. $449.50 But they had a least 5 more that I saw.

Get it now. Doubt there will be any more.

Seems like only M855 and SS109 rounds being affected! Why should I be concerned about this? 223 ammo is still 25 cents around on ammoman

Well looks like AIMSURPLUS is still selling it for regular price.

I'm sure they will be sold out pretty soon, get it before the gougers get you...

I must start by saying a citizen of the United States of America I find it sad the way the government decides to continually erode the Bill of Rights by making more and more laws restricting what we as citizens can or cannot do. Which weapons I may or may not own or use to hunt. The second amendment does not pertain to hunting/sporting purposes, it refers to protecting oneself from a too powerful government. The gov’t already restricts certain accessories and weapons.

As a Law Enforcement Officer I have never been concerned about armor piercing rounds. I get dressed each day and perform my duties with the intention of making it home each day. I am well aware the biggest three killers of LEO’s in America are:
Vehicular accidents
Heart Attacks
Self
The body armor we wear each day is hot, uncomfortable and I refer to it as prophylactic, it exist to give us a false sense of security. It covers such a small portion of our bodies, the things it does protect us from are limited and then there are things with sharp points that go thru like butter. Is it better to be shot in the pelvis with a lead round ball from a musket or shot in the chest with armor piercing ammo from a machine gun? I would prefer neither but I accept that either could happen any day.

Thank you for your time,


i am cancelling my subscription, i am tired of your issues!
